World's Greatest Music writes: Puressence

I'm pretty sure it was Puressence who graffittied their name all over Manchester city centre before they were signed. This didn't endear me to them and nor did their first album, although I would probably hear something good in it if I listened again now.

I thought their second album Only Forever was great and should have made them one of the line of massive British bands that ran Radiohead, The Verve, Manic Street Preachers, Travis, Stereophonics, Coldplay etc.
James Mudrickzi has a really excellent voice.

Here are three tracks from Only Forever:


(buy It Doesn't Matter Anymore from iTunes)


(buy Street Lights from iTunes)

and here's a TV performance of This Feeling:


(buy the original from iTunes)

This article explains it was Puressence whose name was all over Manchester city centre, but it was fly posting rather than graffitti:

They laughed when I bought "This Feeling" 5 years ago (or something). Well they're not laughing now, are they? Eh? EH?!
